Zig n’ Zag

I finally found time to sandwich my Zig n’ Zag quilt top. I love the bright colours and how they pop against the white background. I decided not to add borders, I like how the pattern runs to the edge of the quilt.
I can’t wait to quilt this baby!



Feeding Time


What fun I had working on this little cute, sweet bibs. How perfect the Mama bird, feeding the baby birdie! These are hand embroidered on cotton fabric and I love the coordinating fabrics.

What more can I say, love them. I’ll now put them up on my Etsy Shop



Empty Nest Again

Well it’s time of year again. September is always a melancholy time for me. Summer is almost over, the days are getting shorter and my son leaves for school, again. I keep kidding myself that my husband and I are too young to be empty nesters, but I guess when you’re 50+ it’s not really young and I’m definitely not saying it’s old!
Oh well, he’s not that far and I do love going to Ottawa, one of my favourite cities to visit and it’s only a month to our Thanksgiving! Okay that makes me feel better. I’ll miss him terribly but it’s not forever. Love you Daniel.

Spring Blooms

I’ve caught the applique bug and here is my first project. I love tulips, in the spring my gardens are full of tulips of all colours so I thought why not try to tulips on a pillow case. My pillow case of course turned into this cute little quilt.

How perfect for a crib or as a wall hanging!
